Default Imperial Culture

Just wondering -- seeing as the 3I is the dominant political, economic and military force in Traveller, it's "culture" must be a very pervasive thing throughout the galaxy. What does "imperial culture" mean in YTU?

Is there a monolithic, or at least easily definable set of characteristics that helps a world define itself as pro-imperium or anti-imperium?

What would be an example of an imperial sub-culture or counter culture?

What are the ways that culture intersects with the nobility and the megacorps?

What are the principle norms of behaviour, and how restrictive are they?

What are the clevages -- racism, sexism, sexuality, religion? What styles of art, music and literature are considered "quintessentially Imperial"?

How many centres are imperial culture are there -- e.g. Vilani, Sylean and Solomani -- and how do they differ?

There are so many places to take something like this, so I wanted to hear what people think...
